Altitude and V tails

Hi, I´m new in UAV users ; recently I bought a Talon UAV and I have some doubt:

1.- Someone have been a problem to flight up to 2,260 meters over sea? This is the altitude of Mexico City, where I live.

2.- I observe that V tail are not sustain very well on the body airplane. I dont want to glue the V tail, because is difficult to transport. Someone to use a mechanics to put and remove the V tails?.

3.- The RC technician told me that is probable the Talon will need a long runway to take off. How many meters you need to take off with 2.00 kilograms

Now I arm the Talon and the next week is my first flight.

    • I'm no expert, but at your altitude, I would fit a 3548 1100KV motor, if you are going to hand launch.

  • Tatich,

    Unfortunately you either have to glue the Vtail in, or make some way of screwing it in.

    Did you get the Talon with wing extensions ?

    At 2 Kg all up weight, with wing extensions and the correct motor, hand launch isn't a problem, even at you altitude.
